    Could you please let me know where do you have in house watchmaker in the US?

  3. Swiss Watch Wire

    Not sure we understand the question. Can you please elaborate? Are you referring to Patek Philippe or a US watchmaker that makes their own watch movements.

  4. Swiss Watch Wire

    Agreed – a surprise to us as well.

    Regardless; the brand and its heritage still define the standards that many others aspire to in terms of precision, simplicity, exclusivity and investment potential.

  6. 50,000 watch, 50 type of movement that’s a very low ratio of watch production per movement type. Explain the exclusivity it enjoys.

  7. Deon Brown

    Im not surprised at all and do question the integrity of the brand.
